In May 2018, IMS TECHNOLOGIES S.p.A. (Calcinate, Italy), parent group of the globally renowned brand GOEBEL IMS, and Laem System announced their strategic partnership. The goal of this synergy is to present to the market an expanded machine range for primary, secondary and converting industries as well as slitting and winding solutions. Nearly a year later both companies jointly present their comprehensive portfolio in hall A6, booth 344 at ICE Europe.

At the booth of Laem System and GOEBEL IMS, interested visitors can learn more about attractive package solutions for the converting of paper, alufoil, film and flexible packaging materials. A special highlight is the exhibited machine RB 4 of Laem System. This centre-driven slitter rewinder is particularly suitable for film manufacturers and converters producing finished reels with web widths starting at 40mm. The RB 4 is designed for unwinding diameters of up to 1000mm and a maximum rewinding diameter of 600mm. At production speeds of up to 600m/min, the slitter rewinder processes mother rolls with up to 1800kg and web widths between 1200 mm and 1600 mm. Short cycle downtimes and highest productivity are guaranteed with this dual shaft machine thanks to its systems for fast loading and unloading. Depending on customer requirements, the RB 4 is equipped with one motor driving both rewinding shafts or two rewinding motors for independent control of upper and lower shafts. The operator-friendly control panel of the centre-driven slitter rewinder RB 4 can be experienced first-hand at the booth. As strategic partner of Laem System, GOEBEL IMS will be highlighting its newest slitting and winding machines XTRASLIT 2 and RAPID D1.
